6:06pm
the restaurant skins what's going on. it seems at the bye week, they were 3-6 and people said, the season was over. well, the eagles have nothing and everything to play for tomorrow when they play the red skins. the season is long over at 4- 10, but not only can they play the role of spoilers and grinch, this could be the last home game that they will play under coach reid. last game, griffin picked apart the eagles defense. the hookup with santana moss was the longest of the day. nick foles has improved as a
6:07pm
quarterback. although they only one one game in five starts, this did it in drama sick fashion. you know, no one in the locker room is jump can around, excite that had we are on a win streak and we control our own destiny. everyone is still focused on what we have to do and everybody is still feeling sore from the game. >> a win over the eagles would give the revved skins their first sweep of philly since 2008 and one more win away from making the post season one more win and they will be in for sure and host a home game. >> that's huge. still ahead, the fall jawt continues from the national rifle association's comments. the latest on that coming up next. รณ

6:12pm
effective. a third said somewhat and 13% said they don't think. when asked to ban the sale of assault and semiautomatic weapons, ruffle 4 out of 10 said yes. 2 out of 10 said what. and 32% said this would not be effective. connecticut senator richard blumenthal says that the n r a missed an opportunity. >> the nra's proposal to put armed guards in some schools may be efficient in some cases but it falls very shored of some comprehensive action needed to stop the horrible action from happening. >> the group says it will take questions next week. in new york, rick leventhal, fox news. meanwhile, hollywood is demanding changes, demanding changes to gun laws.

6:23pm
weather seven-day forecast. you still have a couple of days to get some of the shopping done and the weather will cooperate up to a point. so we'll have the full forecast, the christmas forecast as well as the change in the weather pattern coming up as well a little bit later for everybody. >> thanks very much, gwen. prince george's county police held theirage toys for tots campaign event. it was very good event. for the past six years, they have been partnering with the u.s. marine corps reserves. the one-day event hems children who are less fortunate. >> it's gotten bigger and bigger and bigger and it's fantastic. >> 37,000 toys. >> a waitress in a northern virginia restaurant working on her college degree got quite a

6:29pm
famous yatch being docked? that story much more ahead in the next half hour. but the top story, with congress in recess until christmas, it seems more likely than ever that the nation's economy will fall off the fiscal cliff. president obama is calling on congress to do just enough to change that. it's a change from his previous push for sweeping reforms. >> the american people re- elected president obama on election day. they also re-elected a republican majority here in the house. in doing so, they gave us all a mandate. it was not a mandate to raise taxes on families and small businesses. it was a mandate for us to work together to begin solving the massive debt that threatens our country's future. unfortunately, the president and senate democrats vowed to reject and vetoed all of our
6:30pm
proposals while failing to offer responsible solutions of their own. >> the chance for any deal may now be up to the democratally controlled senate since the speaker's plan to allow taxes to be raised for millionaires have gone down. the first lady and president will attend the funeral for senator daniel inouye. massachusetts voters faced another race since john kerry is now the official nominee for secretary of state. the state will have to hold a third senate election since 2010, if he is confirmed. steve doocy has more. >> reporter: a week after u.n. ambassador susan rice says not to nominate her for secretary of state because the
6:31pm
nomination process may be too tough, divisive. >> in a sense, john's entire life has prepared him for his role. as a son of a foreign service officer, he has a deep respect for of the men and women of the state department. the role they play in advancing our interests and values, the risks that they undertake and the sacrifices that they make along with their families. >> senator john mccain congratulated kerry on his nomination and the republican from arizona says he looks forward to considering him for secretary of state but he did not promise his support. >> my view on weather secretary kerry should be -- senator kerry should be secretary kerry will not be base the on differing views. we have had differences in opinion when he said that
6:32pm
desert storm would fail. >> secretary clinton was not able to make it to the white house at all. she is still recovering from the same connell cuss that is preventing her from testifying to dade about what she knew about the raid in benghazi. to egypt now and the new constitution there likely to win approval today in the final round ovoting, but that does not mean that there wouldn't be trouble. the fight over president morsi's power turned some former allies into enemies. now they are pushing for are harder islamic rule. >> i'm going to say yes. because over 90% of the articles of the constitution and i'm totally convinced it that has some points that in don't agree with totally but, again, they can be changed later on in parliament. >> the egyptian vice president resigned today which was not a
6:33pm
surprise. what was a little unexpected was that he did it before the vote was over. north korea's leader called for more powerful rockets for hires country. it's the first time he has explicitly named that goal and publicly. north korea says it wants to build a satellite program, but the united nations says that is a program to build nuclear missiles. pope benedict xvi has pardoned the man who stole documents from him and gave them to the man who wrote a book alleging corruption and even sexual affairs within the vat canal. >> this constitutes a
